Continue passing by National Garden, Hadrian’s Arc, St. Paul’s Church, Parliament, Tomb of the Unknown soldier, Schliemann’s House (Numismatic Museum), Catholic Cathedral,  Old Parliament, Constitution Square ,Russian Orthodox Church, and finally ACROPOLIS.


Continue the expert guided Athens sightseeing and  Acropolis museum one day tour with a pleasant short walk passing by Herodion and Dionysos Theater, in order to visit the  ACROPOLIS museum. Avoid and skip the lines of the new museum. Main attractions such as votives,  statues from archaic period, Caryatids, and of course the Parthenon hall with the metopes, the pediments and the frieze will impress you.


After a morning tour full of images continue in a local restaurant under the slopes of Acropolis for lunch. After lunch depart for a wonderful drive along the scenic coastal road which affords a splendid view of the Saronic Gulf, passing through some of Athens most beautiful suburbs (Glyfada, Vouliagmeni, Varkiza) to CAPE SOUNION. Cape Sounion is only 45 miles (70 kilometers) from Athens, making it the perfect lazy afternoon tour destination. The Cape's Temple of Poseidon is perched on a rocky hilltop overlooking the sea. The view across the Aegean is magnificent with one of the most breathtaking panoramic views in the world, extending all the way to Kea and the Peloponnese on a clear day. The Temple of Poseidon was built in 44 B.C., and many of its original Doric columns are still standing. One of the columns has a graffiti left by none other than Lord Byron in the early 1800s. The precipice is a sheer 197 foot drop to the sea.

  • I liked it very much. There was a lot to cover and it was covered very well.

  • Our tour guide was Anatasia. Very nice, very patient and very informative. We learned so much and everything was a suitable pace for us. We did the lunch and it was very delicious and portions were large!

  • It was a nice all day tour and it's worth every penny.

  • Great guide, the lunch was exceptional and the tour locations were what we wanted to see on a tight timeframe. The bus seating for taller people can be better.

  • I highly recommend taking this tour - great guide and fantastic all around.

  • This was a long hot day but the guide was excellent and we were able to see what we wanted to see. The museum was fascinating and gave our visit to the Acropolis context.

  • My wife and I went to Athens for a two night stay which allowed us to take the full day tour. Excellent tour, lunch was very good and filling giving you a real taste of Greece, and of course the Guide was wonderful! We saw all the major things that you would want to see in Athens for such a short stay. With limited time this was the only to do it.

  • A great tour with a knowledgeable guide. We were starving by the time we were given lunch, so take snacks. They needed to allow time to get something to eat. A good tour for day 1 in Athens as it gave an overview of the city.

  • Great tour!

  • The afternoon trip was a bit boring but viewing the coastline was great!
